Posted:

ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) -- An employee at a Tennessee factory opened fire, killing two fellow workers before killing himself.

Athens police say they found the body of 45-year-old Ricky Swafford in a bathroom Thursday at the Thomas & Betts plant, which designs and makes electrical components.

He appeared to have a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Parent company ABB released a statement Thursday night, saying the "loss is profound."
